CFOs across all sectors have realised UK expensive offices and high back office costs in the post-COVID world are not financially sustainable and the funds can be reallocated to frontline services. There has never been a greater need for charities to drive efficiencies in their business support functions and be creative about how these are achieved.
In response to the many challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Robertson Bell and QX have created a unique service offering for the UK charity sector. The new service involves the creation of a dedicated offshore service centre to take care of all your finance and accounting needs.
Combining the best of both worlds
Robertson Bell is one of the UK’s leading providers of Human Capital to the charity and wider not for profit sectors. After having worked with hundreds of leading brands in the sector, the business has built an enviable reputation for quality, reliability and trustworthiness.
QX is an award-winning, outsourcing company with over 2000 employees, providing a broad range of services in accounting, payroll, and software.
Ever since its establishment in 2003, QX has built a global presence, serving clients across sectors including manufacturing, student accommodation, recruitment, healthcare, media & publishing and accounting in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. QX works at the intersection of finance, technology and operations to help its clients meet their compliance and reporting obligations and to transform processes and improve performance. Leading UK charity Finance Director Stephen Perry (Livability, Mencap, Action for Children and more) has joined the Robertson Bell team to work with QX in developing this solution. Stephen has an immense amount of charity finance department relocation experience and will be instrumental in overseeing the smooth transition of services as well as spotting opportunities for advancing the use of technology to enhance automation.
